Western Star To Shut Kelowna Plant Two Weeks In April
March 20, 2000
Western Star Trucks has announced an unscheduled two week shutdown at its Kelowna, BC, truck plant early in April. The company blamed a softening North American Class 8 truck market plus high dealer inventories.
Western Star assembles 31 trucks a day at Kelowna and 3 a day at its new North Charleston, SC, plant opened late last year.
Kenworth, Peterbilt, International and Volvo have also announced shutdowns and production cutbacks.
